Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

The Perfect Screenshot

[ #34691 ]

OK, so there's some backstory missing, but this screenshot posted to the London.pm list has to be one of the funniest I've seen in quite some time.

Of course, this might be akin to my favorite Prolog joke:

Q. How many Prolog programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?
A. No.

Maybe you just had to be there. I ain't gonna make a living writing comedy.

  • I laughed :-)
    • So did I and several programmer friends to whom I pasted that in IM or IRC. :-)

      • I've got the output of a mate's undergrad project from the dim and distant past - a story generator written in Prolog. The last line of the output always kills me.

        fred took his dagger and slit bill`s throat.
        He felt very bad about himself afterwards.
        fred sneaked out in the darkest shadows of the
        night. He went to where twibble kept the crown and
        stole away with it.
        fred took the crown, and had the bishop crown him in full
        view of the people. fred was king at last.
        Everybody lived happily ever after or was dead,

  • I really want to see you on stage in a sparkly suit with that material :) (I laughed at mutt /and/ prolog. So maybe with the right audience you'd go far)
